ESPN analyst Michael Irvin recently said the Eagles would be undefeated if Favre was the starting quarterback.
Asked for his thoughts on Irvin's comment, Owens said: "That's a good assessment, I would agree with that, just with what [Favre] brings to the table.
"A number of commentators will say he's a warrior, he's played with injuries. I feel like him being knowledgable about the quarterback position, I feel like we'd probably be in a better situation."And T.O. concluded:
"I just want to be happy," he said. "If it's here then I would love to be here, if not you got to move on. ... If there's a situation where they have a change of heart and come to their senses and pay me what I'm worth, then I'd be more than happy to be here.
"At this time I'm being honest with myself just trying to look toward the future and I just don't see myself really being here. It's not because I don't want to be here but I just don't foresee them doing the necessary things to keep me here."I wonder if he doesn't realize that his comments can have the effect of hurting team unity, or if he just doesn't care. I can see either being the case. He might not realize it, because it seems that he's never been a team player and only plays for himself, so he might really not understand the real concept of a team. And of course, he might just not care, because he is T.O. and believes god is on his side, whatever he does. Being true to yourself is one thing. But when you're a jerk, I don't think god would support you in every stupid thing you do, even if it's just "who you are", etc.
Let's hope Reggie Brown develops quickly, so he can step into T.O.'s shoes next season. Once we cut T.O. loose, get No. 5 healthy again and resign Westy, maybe we have a chance to get back on track next season. This season is a wash. After this stretch of NFC East games, I think we should consider playing our rookies and younger guys a lot more.
